Probe faults pilots and controller for 2013 Alaska crash

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 08/12/2014 - 07:05
By Steve Quinn JUNEAU Alaska (Reuters) - A cargo plane's crash into a mountainside in southwest Alaska last year was caused by failure to maintain a safe altitude, which was the fault of an air traffic controller and the two pilots who died in the accident, federal regulators said on Monday. The Alaska Central Express Air Cargo crashed on March 8, 2013, after striking a "rock outcrop protruding from the snow" outside Dillingham, the plane's destination, according to the National Transportation Safety Board. The crash took the lives of pilot Jeff Day, 38, and his co-pilot, 21-year-old Neil Jensen. Meanwhile, the air traffic controller's instructions were "ambiguous," the report said, and failed to specify what segment of the approach could be done at 2,000 feet.
